Verbs with prepositions There are certain Spanish verbs that require a specific preposition to be used after them. These  prepositions must follow the verb form to join them to an infinitive, but they are usually not translated  into English. The following verbs are followed by a preposition and then another verb in its infinitive form (to help  you remember which are stem changes, the stem change is indicated in parentheses). Note with the  exceptions, however, that most of the time these verbs are followed by nouns; therefore, either  another preposition is used or no preposition at all. acabar de + infinitive to have just ___ed BUT: acabo la tarea acertar (e>ie) a + infinitive to happen to, to succeed in … aprender a + infinitive to learn to …BUT: aprendo español
